One in every six foreign criminals living in the UK have disappeared, according to a damning report from the government's spending watchdog. The reports also revealed that up to £1 billion of public money was spent in an effort to locate them.
The Home Secretary has hit back at Labour criticisms over foreign national criminals, saying the Government "have a plan and that plan is working"
Addressing MPs, She pointed to today's National Audit Office report, which said the number of removals of foreign national offenders (FNOs) had risen 12% in the last two years.
The report stated that this was "largely because of a change in the department's approach to deportation", Ms May added.
She also accused Labour themselves of failing to address the issue when in government, telling Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper:
Norwegian second division side Gjovik-Lyn have announced that English midfielder Thomas Andrew Morgan was found dead late on Tuesday.
The 23 year-old, who joined the club in January following spells with various other Norwegian teams, went missing on Sunday after a night out.
He was found in the Hunnselva river near Oslo last night, although the cause of his death remains unclear.
A statement released on Gjovik-Lyn's official website read:
"Our beloved Thomas Andrew Morgan was found dead on Tuesday afternoon.
"In his time with us we knew Thomas not only as a great football player, but also as an exceptionally good man. We will miss your warm smile and everything you were to us."
The Shadow Home Secretary has accused Theresa May of endangering the UK's border security by "faffing around" over co-operating with other European nations.
Yvette Cooper said the Government had delayed putting in place proper controls on foreign criminals by opting out of a shared European information system.
She also rejected Ms May's contention that problems with deporting foreign criminals had beset successive governments, saying:
World Cup winning captain Fabio Cannavaro is being investigated by Italian finance police over alleged tax fraud.
The 41 year-old former defender lifted the World Cup for Italy in 2006, and worked as a pundit for ITV during the 2014 tournament in Brazil.
Police are thought to be investigating claims of wrongdoing relating to a luxury boat rental company he set up with his wife.
The Italian authorities confirmed on Wednesday they have seized approximately £712,000 worth of Cannavaro's assets.
David Cameron has said the "buck stops with me" when it comes to the "difficult issue" of deporting foreign criminals.
The Prime Minister was responding to a report from the National Audit Office (NAO) that said one in six foreign offenders in the UK could not be traced by the authorities.
He told MPs at Prime Minister's Questions that the NAO had highlighted the "obstacles" that human rights legislation presents when trying to deport foreign nationals.
Mr Cameron also pointed to changes the Government had made to improve the system, saying:
Home Office errors are to blame for at least a third of failed removals of foreign criminals, the National Audit Office (NAO) says.
In a report, the organisation found that one in six foreign criminals living in the UK have absconded.
Louise Bladen, director of the NAO, said legal restrictions and delays in the process were also to blame for the number of criminals going missing.
Ukip have hit out after Mike Read withdrew his 'Ukip Calypso' song from sale.
